Aurora Expeditions launched a new expanded 2022-2023 Season Brochure for the line's Arctic, Antarctica, and Global program.

Monique Ponfoort, CEO of Aurora Expeditions said their season of voyages featured "16 new and innovative itineraries and several returning favourites" while their newest ship, Sylvia Earle, was also making her debut as part of the 2022-2023 season. The brochure additionally provides a first look at the line’s newly expanded Citizen Science Program, scheduled to launch across all sailings in 2022.

Some of the destination highlights in this season feature Aurora Expeditions’ itineraries to the Northwest Passage, Alaska, Ireland, and West Papua. In addition, the company is returning to the Russian Far East and Antarctica in its 30th year of operation.

“Facilitating education, enrichment and discovery are key to Aurora Expeditions’ voyages. Our two ships in the fleet, the Greg Mortimer and the Sylvia Earle, are both new, beautifully appointed and utilise the latest technology including the revolutionary Ulstein X-Bow® hull, which ensures we can explore the furthest reaches of our planet smoothly and efficiently.

“Aurora Expeditions is proud to continue to give our guests the opportunity to push their boundaries in the most beautiful and remote places on earth, offering the most comprehensive activity program with an unrivalled array of activities and led by the most experienced, professional and passionate expedition team in the industry,” Ponfoort continued.

“In line with Aurora’s commitment to the conservation of the environment and taking real actions for the care of the planet, we are also thrilled that our expanded Citizen Science Program will launch across all of our voyages in 2022.”
